Support RPG Crossing and a good cause at the same timeThis December, help our community add at least $2,500 to our $17,000 lifetime total to support mental illness research through the Brain & Behavior Research Foundation and "to bring the joy of living to those affected by mental illness – those who are ill and their families and friends."

You can track our progress through announcements and information that will be posted at, and through our event page for the BBR Foundation.

How it works1 - Effective immediately (Dec 1) and continuing until (and including) Saturday, Dec 31, 2022, $5 of every FULL YEAR Community Supporter membership will be donated to support mental illness research, via the Brain and Behavior Research Foundation. The foundation does its work by awarding research grants. 100% of your contributions for research are invested in research thanks to the generous support of two family foundations which cover the BBR Foundation's operating expenses.

2 - You can make a direct donation to the BBR Foundation through our event page for the BBR Foundation.

Goals and GoodiesWith great thanks to our supporters, in addition to the matching donation to charity, everyone who donates $10 or more through our team page for the Brain & Behavior Foundation OR who purchases a full year CS for themselves or receives one as a giftadds a full year CS to their account will get all of the following:
  • A PDF or VTT (your choice) copy of "Under the Harvest Moons" from Underground Oracle!
  • A PDF copy of both the Fragged Empire Core Rules (1st edition) and Fragged Kingdom from!
  • A 15% off coupon for Avatar Legends the Roleplaying Game by Magpie Games!
  • A free one month subscription at AAW Games!
  • A copy of the Baudelaire Big Bad PDF from Hit Point Press!
  • A PDF copy of the Spelljammer 5E rules hack produced for the Astral Agents in Boats Podcast!
  • PDF copies of Phantom Trade and Goblins the late late movie from Orcs Unlimited!
  • A PDF copy of "Between Dungeons Handbook" from Cawood Publishing!

Also, anyone who donates $20 or more directly to the charity will receive a pair of custom RPG Crossing D6 dice (requires sharing a mailing address.)

That's a pretty great list, so please be generous with your donations. This year, there will be no small giveaways -- all contestants get all the above prizes. And we have special grand prizes for the most generous donors to charity....

Special Grand Prizes
AAW Games has generously offered to mail each of the top 6 donors a copy of "Rise of the Drow: Collector’s Edition" (MSRP $129.99)! Lean into that dark elf magic and give generously!

Donations by "RPG Crossing" or by matching donors will not count towards these prizes. If you make an anonymous donation but want to be included, please be sure to leave enough information so that you can be counted and contacted in the message text (username at RPG Crossing is enough.)

FAQWhat is a Community Supporter account? We are committed to providing an excellent community to all members, but Community Supporters get some perks. Some of these are: a mobile style for easier reading on smaller devices, more private message space, a larger avatar, extensive folder management in games, the Community Supporter badge, access to the Community Supporter forum and its games & wish thread & private threads, nearly automatic game approval, and the warm feeling of knowing that you've helped keep the community going. For a more complete run down and chart, please visit the Community Supporter help page.

How to purchase a membership for someone else: If you'd like to buy a CS membership for a friend, buy one on your account and send a pm to Birched -- he will transfer the year to the account of your choosing. Please indicate the exact username of the recipient, and whether you'd like the gift to be anonymous.

How to purchase a membership with no credit card or PayPal: Credit card purchases can be made through PayPal even without an account (and if you don't want an account, don't fall for their attempt to get you to make one after you enter your payment information), but if that's not an option, memberships can also be purchased by additional options shown on the paid subcriptions page. Please send a pm to Birched if you have question or want more information.

Can I make a donation to BBR Foundation through the site without buying a membership: Yes. Please donate through our campaign with BBR Foundation at this link. Donations of $10 will qualify for participant rewards. If you are interested in these, please include your site username in the comment box so that we can contact you at to deliver rewards.

What is a full year membership: A full year membership is the Community Supporter membership that costs USD$36 or CAD$48.

If you've been planning to buy a CS membership for yourself or someone else on the site, this is a great time to do that and also give to a worthwhile cause. Almost all of us have been touched by these illnesses in one way or another, either in our families, amongst our friends, or even here on the site (some of those unexplained absences of PBP players, perhaps?)

I will report back and let you know how we are doing. Wishing you all all the best for the holiday season,

~ Mark / Birched

P.S. If you are a CS, you can hide the graphic I will be adding to the header in the same way that you can hide the Twitter and Google+ buttons.
